CD Reviews

Now this is the Modern Grindcore!!!
WelcomeTheAbyss | The Flatlands | 02/10/2005
(5 out of 5 stars)

"These swedes are quite frankly just plain awesome. While most grind band's offer little if any variety in their songs Asterisk*(THIS is the real band name, NOT Asterix) manage to inject plenty while staying true to the basic essence of grindcore, which is basically to melt the skin off your listener's faces with a nuclear-detonated wall of noise. How they do that while incorporating a bit of piano,punk-ish like guitars,a cover of Queen's "Ogre Battle"(?!),almost hardcore like breakdowns,techno,minimalistic noise,and even an excerpt from Woody Allen beats the hell out of me. All the songs have their own unique bits to them, instead of blurring together into an almost undistinguishable noise(Not to say that's always a bad thing...). Also noted is that Discordance Axis' vocalist Jon Chang did the cover art and layout. I don't know if I dare say it but...this album might be as important as Napalm Death's 'Scum' when it first came out, maybe not genre-defining but definately genre-bending. A must have for fans of the grindcore genre, THIS IS THE NEW GRIND!!!"
